Alona Rosenberg and Meggie Danielson are starting up the WeMove Studio in Mullumbimby this month. Photo supplied.

Mullumbimby will see a two week dance fest starting on February 19 when WeMove dance studio opens its doors.

Alona Rosenberg and Meggie Danielson believe there is a need for a dance studio in Mullumbimby and feel that a space specifically dedicated to movement would be a great asset to the community.

WeMove Studio is planning to operate as a social enterprise and will be supporting community projects by contributing a percentage of all membership fees back into local community, youth and indigenous movement programs.

‘We want to make it easier for people to move more on a daily basis, so we’ve created an inclusive space for the community to come and rise together through dance,’ says Alona.

Alona and Meggie have designed a comfortable and professional space fitted with sprung dance floors and mirrors to inspire creativity through movement and exploration.

‘The vision is to offer variety. We really value the talented movement teachers in this area and we are creating a team of passionate facilitators to collaborate with,’ added Meggie.

Tickets to the Dance Fest include a two week unlimited attendance to classes such as Latin, Brazilian and Belly dance; yoga, conscious, healing and creative movement; contemporary, hip hop, fitness and fusion; kids, youth and adults classes as well as open studio times – where there is an inspiring mixed-tape playing and the floor is open.

‘The Dance Fest will give people the chance to experience new dance styles, a variety of talented teachers and the new studio space,’ finished Meggie.
